Mark your calendars! The 2020 School Rocks Backpack Giveaway is happening Sunday, July 26 from 1-4PM. TCC stores across the country will be giving away free backpacks filled with school supplies. While supplies last. One backpack per child.
Your safety is our number one priority, so this year we will be taking extra precautions during our giveaway. We will be encouraging 6 feet social distancing and wearing face coverings. Participating locations will either be holding walk-up or drive thru events. Call or visit your individual TCC location to get more details about their giveaway.

Plus, this year is extra exciting because we are giving away our one millionth backpack! What are we doing to celebrate? Giving away five $10,000 college scholarships! Enter your child(ren) to win when you attend the giveaway on the 26th at your local TCC store.
We’ve done this backpack giveaway for the last 8 years because we know it’s expensive to send a child to school! Each year, the cost for supplies rises. This year, the Huntington Backpack Index estimates that it costs $1,017 to send an elementary-aged child to school for just one year. TCC stores want to do what they can to help out families in our communities. This isn’t our only giveaway event we do.
We were recently featured on a video series, American Companies Give Back, where our CEO, Scott Moorehead, talks all about our good.

To Whom it may concern. I just want to say thank you so very much for the things you do to help families in need. its because of you that my adopted grandchildren have had backpacks when then went to school. I am on disability due to cancer I get a monthly check that barely covers the bills, so having people like you that are there to help is such a blessing so I want to say thank you with all my heart for the things you do. May God bless you always from my family to yours

What is the grade/age range? I. would like to pass this information on to the appropriate families.
Hi Mary! The backpack giveaway is open to students of all ages.
If you attend a giveaway on Sunday and would like to register a child for a chance to win one of the five $10,000 scholarships, that is for grades K – 12.
I have participated in this giveaway for the past couple of years for my child, and do really appreciate the backpack and supplies. This year the location I usually go to is not on the list, and there are none in my area. I was wondering why that is? My family looks forward to this every year. Thank you and stay safe.
Due to COVID, we have a few locations closed on Sundays that will not be open to hold a backpack giveaway. If you would like to share your zip code or town name and state with me, I can check to see where your closest giveaway location will be.
